What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The work/life balance is very good as the nature of the work means you can't take it home with you. Also, flexible working is fantastic as I can build my hours and then take them off whenever I like (with my manager's permission of course).
The sensitivity of the job means it is not supposed to be discussed/shared outside of work, which can be annoying but is easy to get used to. Also, the work is challenging and at one time you can take on a lot of responsibility, but there is often a lot of support from others when in need of help.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £21,000 - £23,000

Try to think outside the box when it comes to the technical questions and don't rush them.
